The National Nanotechnology Centre has signed up to join the Research Network for Nanotechnology (RNN) Project along with 11 network centres from seven universities.

The aim of the project is to build a research network in nanotechnology and encourage the use of R&D to benefit the nation both economically and socially.

Wannee Chinsirikul, executive director of National Nanotechnology Centre (Nanotec) said it has collaborated with seven universities to form specific research networks. 

These networks would would have a common interest in research topics for both Nanotec and the network centres which could co-supervise graduate students to build a strong technological foundation and further develop practical works which could be utilised commercially. The targeted areas consisting of five research frameworks are: 

Nanotechnology for Medical and Public Health

Nanotechnology for Environment

Nanotechnology for Food and Agriculture

Nanotechnology for Metrology and Characterisation

Nanotechnology for Energy

Wannee also said that the collaboration among Nanotec and the participating universities is one of the major missions which could promote  research and development according to Thailand´s Nanotechnology Roadmap, and the National Science Technology and Innovation Policy (STI) which is the master plan to drive the country towards Thailand 4.0.
